THE ETIQUETTE OF TYRANNY

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

When the second impeachment of former President Donald Trump reached the Senate, one brave senator challenged its constitutionality.

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul declared former President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial “dead on arrival” on Tuesday after 45 Senate Republicans voted against holding the proceeding, viewing it as unconstitutional.

Rand, a Kentucky Republican, had called for a procedural vote regarding holding a trial, claiming the Senate shouldn’t address the article of impeachment against Trump filed by the House this month because Trump is now out of office.

  1. I have not listened to the speech, but hav only read the Washington Examiner article linked by Tom. Can anyone here answer, whether or not Senator Paul addressed, that Trump has been impeached the second time by the House while still sitting, and that the Senate is not to impeach him, but to hold the associated trial? Did he also address that in case of conviction, this is not just about removal from office, but that Trump could be barred from ever again holding a public office?

      I suggest you listen to Senator Paul’s speech and consider the fact that the Chief Justice wanted nothing to do with what is nothing more than a hypocritical show trial.

      Biden has signed more than 30 executive orders. We should be discussing those executive orders. Instead, Democrats want us to watch their stupid sspectacle.

      Purr would be tyrants want us swinging at empty air. I am going to where I can hit them.

      1. “consider the fact that the Chief Justice wanted nothing to do with”

        Where did you get that claim from, that Chief Justice Robertson __refused__ to preside over the Impeachment trial? Please provide a source.

          It is Chief Justice John Roberts, but all you have to do is Google “Chief Justice.” Senator Leahy will take the job if his health allows it. He is the President Pro Tempore of the Senate.

          1. @Tom:
            a) Thanks for correcting my misnaming of Chief Justice Roberts.
            b) You still did not answer my question. You said “Chief Justice wanted nothing to do with”, which implies he either was asked and refused or made it known he would refuse, if asked. So what is your source for that claim? I presume, that a request from him to preside never came up in the first place.

            Background:
            I am not asking for the fact, that Senator Leahy is scheduled to take the job. It is my understanding, that by your constitution, the Chief Justice presides over the Impeachment trials of the sitting president, in order to avoid conflicts of interest for the Vice President. (The article is from January last year):

            Impeachment trials of presidents may excite more public interest than impeachment trials of other “civil officers,” but they are no different in constitutional form. The standard of impeachable conduct is the same – “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” – as is the two-thirds threshold for conviction. The chief justice is inserted into presidential impeachments only to resolve the conflict of interest. His presence in the chair does not make the proceeding more “judicial” in character, nor is he accorded more “judicial” authority than the vice president or president pro tempore (meaning “president for a time”) of the Senate would possess in cases involving other officials. His role is merely to serve the same function they do in such cases. That function is delimited by Senate rules.

            So the fact alone that Chief Justice Roberts does not preside over the trial does not warrant the claim you make.

            Aim to help. Everyone needs some.

            You did not answer my question about China, and you obviously did not listen to Senator Rand Paul’s floor speech.

            This is from Article 1, Section 3 of our Constitution.

            The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

            There is no provision for impeaching a private citizen or trying a private citizen in the U. S. Senate. If the Chief Justice does not want the job, it is not hard to say why, but he isn’t going to explain. Roberts may take sides in political issues, but he abhors being seen as taking sides. So he says nothing, but his actions still speak for themselves.

            Anyway, this impeachment is a sham and a distraction. Biden continues to spew executive orders, our children out still out of school, the Chinese Communist Party malignly seeks power, and conniving Liberal Democrats are still wreaking havoc on public morality. I think we have more significant things discuss.

    I guess we should be thankful we have 45 levelheaded Senators in the Senate and only five who are muiddle headed and polluting the GOP as I explained in my rebuttal pot today to Mitt Romney.
